Why do you think it is important to study diversity and inclusion? Whenever someone does something racist/racially charged, the organization they’re affiliated with issues an apology that almost always includes a sentence to the effect of “that bad behavior doesn’t align with our values of diversity/inclusion/equity”. I want to better understand how companies are defining those values, act out those values, and how they carry through the organization. The CCL will help me develop the skills necessary to ask and answer the question.
Describe a time you felt socially connected to UCLA? UCLA Anderson recently hosted a weeklong slate of programming to lead into our main diversity recruiting effort, Embracing Diversity. It was excellent to connect with current students, alumni, and professionals from all backgrounds who really care about increasing diversity on campus and having tough conversations about how to get there.
